It's best to not be frightened
When God shuts the door real hard
For He will have a reason
To keep the pathway barred
We might feel that life's gone crazy
By this changing of events
But, if we cannot change it
Then it must be heaven sent

There has to be a far greater
Purpose than we know
We could be being sheltered
From a tragedy unknown
The angels may be blocking us
Within a mighty hedge
Protecting us from mysteries
A greater pain or death

God may be changing something
Or altering a heart
He may be working in our family
Something special to impart
He might be showing us a secret
That only this reveals
Something of Himself
To make our faith more real

So, when we cannot find a reason
Nor hope to understand
Then it is guaranteed
God's working on a plan
'Tis only in this trusting
That frustrations ever cease
'Tis only in believing
We ever find His peace

Poetry from the Heart

A poor farmer heard a knock on the door, and opened it to find two travelers seeking shelter for the night. He shared their poor meal with the men, and wanted to give up his bed where he and his wife slept, but they insisted he sleep in his own bed. The farmer, of course, did not know they were angels, sent there to help him. The next morning, the farmer went out to milk the cow. He rushed back into the house, crying, "The cow is dead." As he and his wife were trying to figure out what to do, one angel said to the other, "I thought we were sent here to help him. Why did you let the cow die? He needs her." The other looked at him and said, "Last night while the farmer and his wife slept, the Angel of Death came for the farmer's wife. I gave Him the cow, instead." If something prevents you from doing something, maybe something worse would have happened. My mother taught me that.
Janice Montgomery


The only survivor of a shipwreck was washed up on a small, uninhabited island. He prayed feverishly for God to rescue him Every day he scanned the horizon for help, but none seemed forthcoming. Exhausted, he eventually managed to build a little hut out of driftwood to protect himself from the elements, and to store his few possessions. One day, after scavenging for food, he arrived home to find his little hut in flames, with smoke rolling up to the sky.. He felt the worst had happened, and everything was lost. He was stunned with disbelief, grief, and anger. He cried out, 'God! How could you do this to me?' Early the next day, he was awakened by the sound of a ship approaching the island! It had come to rescue him! 'How did you know I was here?' asked the weary man of his rescuers. 'We saw your smoke signal,' they replied. It's easy to get discouraged when things are going bad, but we shouldn't lose heart, because God is at work in our lives in the midst of our pain and suffering.

"In the silence of this moment"

In the silence of this moment,
Wrapped in loving arms of grace;
I'm surrounded by Your presence,
And I feel Your warm embrace.
How I love You and praise You,
Precious Savior and Friend;
In the silence of this moment,
I'll just say that I love You!
So unworthy of Your mercy,
Undeserving of Your love;
Yet I'm pardoned and forgiven,
And made holy in Your blood.
